Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said that “the ruler of Bahrain must expect painful Islamic revenge on the part of the fighters for the liberation of Jerusalem.”
Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) has threatened Bahrain’s ruler, King Hamad bin Isa bin Salman al-Khalifa, following the announcement of the peace agreement expected to be signed with Israel this coming Tuesday, calling him the “Bahraini killer.”
The Revolutionary Guards said that “the ruler of Bahrain must expect painful Islamic revenge on the part of the fighters for the liberation of Jerusalem.”
In a statement to the Iranian news agency Tasnim, the Revolutionary Guards said that “those responsible for the betrayal will be targets of painful revenge on the part of the people of Bahrain.”
On Saturday night, protest rallies were held in Bahrain against the agreement.
The protest campaign in Bahrain is expanding on social media under the slogan “I am Bahraini, and I reject normalization.”
Bahraini writer Qassem Hussein wrote Sunday that most of Bahrain residents, Sunnis and Shiites, Arabs and non-Arabs, stand by the residents of “Palestine” and reject the manifestations of normalization with Israel.
The population of Bahrain is 60 percent Shiite while the royal house is Sunni.
Hezbollah has also issued threats against Bahrain, and in a statement on Al-Manar TV, it promised that the response will come from “the free peoples and Palestinian resistance factions.”
